    Of all the British pubs in this city full of British pubs, the Dandelion is the one that hits closest to home for expat royalists and those who love them.

    Keep calm and carry on at this kitsch-filled English pub near Rittenhouse Square. Head upstairs and check out the "dog room." Read more

    Stephen Starr's most exciting restaurant. From cured salmon to the best duck liver mousse in town... You cask beer drinkers will be very happy with the drink selection, too. [Eater 38 Member]

    Stephen Starr does it again, and this time with a British inspired pub. This gastropub knows makes delicious Cumberland Sausages with Mashed Potato and Onion Gravy and Beer-battered Fish and Chips.

    Proof that pub fare is more than a fad here: the fish-and-chips, which achieves the pinnacle of moistness and flavor when its crust puffs up to encase the cod, letting the steam work its magic.

    This multi-floored British pub is a high end version of what you'd find downtown at The Dark Horse. Go for the food in particular, our recommendation being their triple-fried chips.

    For brunch, order the beet cured salmon (trust me) and the poached egg with bubble & squeak. If there's a wait, head to the top floor bar and scope a seat instead.

    The Epcot of British pub culture. Come to admire the decor, they did a great job with it. Don't come expecting gastro-divinity. Because the food is mediocre. And not in the British way.
